The Northern Neck Divisions of Land

It is essential to understand how the Virginia Counties of Fredrick; Fauquier; Loudoun; Dunmore and Shannandoah came into existance. The "Animaps" by Goldbug are very helpful to see how the divisions came about.

Me must understand the Military grants given in this area and the migration patterns as ancestors came into these area.

On this page I'll describe how I went about researching these areas as related to my family tree. I hope that it will inspire others to give it a try.

I WILL also include links to interesting genealogy web sites I came across in the course of doing my research.

Research Tips

Be sure to evaluate the source of your information. Remember, you can't believe everything you read! The
Henry Alexander Breshears family has been worked on for many years.

To my knowledge ...there have been errors copied and recopied for at least the past 50 years. It is easy to accept information because it has been presented professionally. At this point we need proof positive.
The Henry Alexander Breshears lineage has been referred to as "The Strays of Spartenburg"

Those should be fighting words to all of us who come from this proud lineage.
